Dutch Green Beans Recipe

This Dutch green bean recipe is a family-favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.  With bacon for some extra flavor and water crestnuts for some added crunch, it's one of our family's favorite side dishes.

My mom made these Dutch green beans every Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I remember.  I never ate it, because I don’t like green beans.  But…then one day I tried it, and it’s very yummy!


:: 3 strips bacon,  cooked and crumpled
:: 1 small onion, diced
:: 1 can sliced water chestnuts
:: 2 cans cut green beans
:: 1/4 tsp. salt
:: 1 tbsp. brown sugar
:: 2 tsp. cornstarch
:: 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
:: 1 tbsp. vinegar


Brown onion and water chestnuts in hot bacon fat.  Drain beans; save 1/2 c. liquid.  Mix liquid with remaining ingredients and add to onions in skillet.  Cook, stirring until mixture bubbles.  Add beans; heat thoroughly.  Serve topped with crumbled bacon.
